    Watch: Mountain Man Performs NPR Tiny Desk Family Hour at SXSW
    NPR / Aaron Rogosin

    As noted in the Nonesuch Journal last week, Mountain Man's time at the 2019 SXSW Music Conference in Austin included a show at South x San José at the Hotel San José and a set at the Central Presbyterian Church as part of NPR Music's SXSW Tiny Desk Family Hour, which All Songs Considered considers among the "'Wow' Moments from SXSW 2019." You can now watch the trio—Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, Molly Sarlé, and Amelia Meath—perform three songs from the set below: "AGT" from group's new album, Magic Ship; Sarlé's song "Human"; and "Grasses" by Daughter of Swords, the new solo project from Sauser-Monnig.

    NPR's Stephen Thompson, in sharing this "softly joyful set," notes Mountain Man's "resplendent blend" and the "wonderful folk-pop songs" to come from Daughter of Swords. Read more at npr.org.

    To pick up a copy of Magic Ship, head to your local independent record store, iTunes, Amazon, the Mountain Man Store, and the Nonesuch Store. Nonesuch Store bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. Magic Ship can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Mountain Man plays the second of two consecutive nights at Preservation Hall in New Orleans tonight and makes its way across the US this spring and summer. For details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Brad Mehldau's Finding Gabriel is out now. The album features performances by Mehldau on piano, synthesizers, percussion, Fender Rhodes, and vocals. Guests include Ambrose Akinmusire, Sara Caswell, Kurt Elling, Joel Frahm, Mark Guiliana, Gabriel Kahane, and Becca Stevens. "A soundtrack for our times," says the AP. "[T]he intricate arrangements of wordless vocals are fascinating, and among the singers is Mehldau, who happens to have a lovely voice. Fetching melodies abound ..." The Times of London gives five stars to the latest album from "the American jazz pianist, one of the best alive ... [T]he dominant mood is of a master musician having fun." To coincide with the album's release, Mehldau has shared a video for the track "The Prophet Is a Fool," which you can watch here.
